A milk truck overturned on State Route 3 in the Town of Hounsfield Saturday afternoon around 1:00 pm.
According to Jefferson County Sheriff's Deputies, the driver of the truck drove off the road into a field to avoid a vehicle stopped to make a left turn.
Once the truck was in the field, deputies say it tipped over, slowly spilling hundreds of gallons of milk.
Thomas Whitmore, the driver and lone occupant of the M and T milk truck, was unharmed.
The Department of Environmental Conservation is assessing the situation to see what has to be done. DEC officials anticipate that the spilt milk will just have to be tilled into the ground.
No tickets were immediately issued.
